in benghazi at the u.s. consulate there. we've been in touch with the state department, again, they are not coming forthwith a confirmation yet. they do tell us there is one american not identified who has been killed after an attack by islamists. they were protesting an independent film made in the united states said to be critical of the muslim prophet, mohammed, and gotten some play on the super net in the arab world. that is rousing up feelings. according to reports, again, unconfirmed reports, the u.s. ambassador was killed when he and others were trying to get other staffers out of the consulate in benghazi, libya, which was under attack, which have, in fact, burning down. a rocket propelled grenade flying around the car that they were in as they were trying to get in in that very dramatic scene. folks, this followed yet another assault on the u.s. embassy in cairo, egypt yesterday. again, protesters there very angry about this very same film. they scaled the walls. they tore down and burned the u.s. flag there. they displayed a black flag with arabic writing. no injurie

consulate in benghazi was a deliberate and organized terrorist assault carried out by extremists affiliated or sympathetic with al qaeda, a flat statement just issued. let's discuss the political fallout in our strategy session. joining us now, the democratic strategist and cnn political contributor donna brazile, along with david frum, contributing editor at "the daily beast" and "newsweek." david, a powerful statement just released by the director of national intelligence. it totally contradicts what the administration was saying in the days that immediately followed the killing of ambassador stevens and the three other americans. what do you make of this? >> totally supports what my colleague reported three days ago who was the first with this story. what it makes is the american ambassador dead, the administration's first impulse was to find ways to cover itself and avoid acknowledging the mistake the ambassador had completely inadequate security in a dangerous place. and it did that by pitting on this youtube video of the maker on his way to prison and charged under other offenses. in

veteran who served in missions from baghdad to benghazi. tyrone woods and glen doherty were former navy s.e.a.l.s who were working as diplomatic security officers at the u.s. consulate. the bodies were met by u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton, vice president joe biden and president barack obama. >> but even as voices of mistrust and suspicion seem to divide countries and cultures from one another, the united states of america will never retreat from the world. >> we've seen the anti-american protests popping up in more than a dozen countries now, but not all of them have been violent like what we've seen in egypt or libya. many more of the protests have been peaceful like this one in pakistan, with muslim demonstrators voicing their anger over an anti-muslim film produced in the u.s. >> some of the largest anti-american protests have been in cairo where officials were forced to build large concrete walls in the streets just to keep protesters away from the u.s. embassy there. ian lee joins me now from cairo. we know at points there's been lots of people, thousands of people, at leas

assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. they came with heavy weapons, which unfortunately are readily available in post-revolutionary libya, and they escalated into a much more violent episode. >> nbc is live for us in benghazi, libya. let's talk about the u.s. officials who are on the ground now. how many of the suspects are in custody and are there any leads on other suspects? >> alex, we had the chance yesterday to speak to libya's president, head of the general national council here. he told us he did agree with ambassador rice on one point. he believes this was a sinister, preplanned attack. this was the hallmark of foreign militants who had come into libya to exploit the security vacuum here and planned a very specific attack against the united

to join in this quote, blessed mission. in benghazi, hundreds protesting against the militia blamed for the a tack on the embassy. and to rid them of the those in eastern libya and the collapse of the regime. and a source telling the evidence points to a joint evident by al sharia not tied with al-qaeda, but sympathetic tried to fail establishing a state in eastern libya. and, the detainee is linked to the group in libya considered the most extremely. given the consulate attack is now branded tyrannyism, why the obama administration seems to be leaning to criminal prosecution. >> how could an attack go that long and what kind of response do we have in place for an attack that of could have went from six to ten to 12 hours and the law enforcement model seems to be being used here. i think that's a huge mistake, the fbi agent who briefed us was singularly unimpressive. >> reporter: fox news is first it report on 9-13 two days of the attack there was evidence suggesting insider help and reuters is now reporting that that is the central focus of the fbi investigation. guys, back to you

terrorist act against the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >> we also need to understand that this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response, not to the united states policy, not to the administration, not to the american people, it is in response to a video. >> to think that the libyan people are somehow involved in this is just not acrats. it was a terrorist attack. organized and carried out by terrorists. >> the people of egypt, libya, yemen and tunisia did not trade the terny of a dictator for the terny of a mob. >> when it comes to criticism, i would note that many observers, commentators and foreign policy expert, as well as elected officials, democrat and republicans, have pointed out that criticism in particular from governor romny and his team in what seems to be an attempt to score a political point, has been both factually wrong and poorly timed. >> we are told by the media that mitt romney spoke to soon the other day. we are told that mitt romney has no foreign policy experience. yet it was romney who issued the most responsible and presidential statement of anybody. >>
